Qtbindings clipboard conflict #17722

In the clipboard package, I see pandas is using pyperclip

the problem is that pyperclip uses PyQt4 when deciding to use Qt for the linux clipboard, which can create a conflict if trying to embed pandas into a PyQt5 or PySide application for example

I think the simplest solution is to use qtpy from the Spyder team, so replace:

from PyQt4.QtGui import QApplication


from qtpy.QtWidgets import QApplication

I am currently working on a PyQt5 based pandas data visualization program and this is a problem I have encountered in the past.
